Just wandreing if anyone knows if Space Marines were being redone. In just starting them and if they are going to be redone then there is no point me getting any more until the new stuff comes out.
I haven't heard anything personally about SM being done anytime within the next year, and I wouldn't hold back on buying any particular models, as the major units of the SM are unlikely to change much, in my opinion. As the man said above, we'll always have tactical squads.
even if the marine codex gets redone, buying tactical squads is a good thing. From what ive heard, the marines will be redone in late 2008 since GW is working on Apocalypse and Orks for now. I would hold back on buying Space marine special characters only because the special characters tend to change from codex edition to codex edition. Assault Marines and Dev squads will probably be in the update, so you can still buy them. Judging from the change from 3rd edition to 4th edition, the only major change will probably be the special characters.
I've heard rumours of the codex getting revamped, but that likely won't happen anytime soon, and the changes won't be so drastic that they'll turn all of our armies into useless heaps of metal and plastic. Especially because the Space Marine line of models is relatively new, and pretty well done - I highly doubt they'll be redoing them, or altering many units in the codex.
So, go for it!
I highly doubt soon as they are updating spcae wovles dark eldar orks and mor ein between late 2008 early 2009 id say for the redux of the codex probably be no new models maybe only special characters released and some specialist bits hopefully.. i doubt the last part though
You'll be fine in buying Space Marines. Given the rumored changes to the Space Marine Codex, no units will become completely worthless when their eventual Redux comes along (which could come as late as 5th edition, which is still many years away). Buy whatever you want and have a blast!
I agree with Katie on this. Although knowing GW and their love for the Space Marines, it wouldn't really surprise me if they made a new Marine codex in the next year or two
And like already mentioned, most squads stay the same in any case. The only thing that might change is the costs, but usually even those stay the same.
unlikly a new codex for codex marines though seeing as we've had blood and dark angels redone recently the space wolves probs wont be far behind. And possibly white scars the other chapters its unlikely they will get codexes of thier own, Fists, hands salamanders, ultras, and ravens, may get data sheets but seeing as both ultras and fists are true codex chapters its unlikely
WELL SAID, NO MORE SQUATS THEY ARE DEAD GET OVER ITOriginally Posted by artificer
